(Newser) – In yet another recall of bad meat, Sam's Club has pulled a brand of frozen hamburgers from its shelves after four children were sickened with E. coli. The warehouse chain, owned by Wal-Mart, recalled American Chef's Selection Angus Beef Patties. They have an expiration date of Feb. 12, 2008, and carry the UPC code 0002874907056 Item 700141, the Associated Press reported.

Those who bought the patties after Aug. 26 should return them to the store or destroy them. They were produced by Cargill Inc. of Minnesota, where the four illnesses were reported. One child remains hospitalized. The move follows a larger recall of patties by Topps Meat Co., which subsequently announced it was going out of business. (Read more beef recall stories.)
